Taking inspiration from birdwatchers this blog will be a record of every unique game I play during 2014. I will provide an overview of each game with my experiences or thoughts about the game. Additionally I will be tagging with labels shown on the left hand side for easy searching of game types.
On a grander scale I hope to inspire others to attempt their big year and experience the joy of gaming!

This game is a spatial challenge. Each turn you get to play a randomly selected piece on the board. You secretly choose an area of the board and the type (city or port) of hex you want to play on. Then everyone reveals what they selected, which also determines play order for that round. Very quickly the board starts to fill up and you'll need to make some tough decisions.

This game was really fun and easy to pick up. It left me wanting to immediately play again as most games that require optimization and limit the amount you can accomplish do. There is great tension in whether or not you get blocked on each turn. Although if you do get blocked there so many other things to focus on and try and complete that you always have other options.
